Thank you, I have had the joy of flying in the aurora when I was stationed in the high arctic in the north of Elsmere Island but what I would give to fly over them.

The sun went down, the clouds were still in the sky, and I am getting images with just 20 second exposures.
Pic to follow!

Aunty Beeb has posted a few pictures of last night's Aurora over the UK.

Needless to say, we were "under clag" here and saw nothing of it, but if there's a repeat tonight it looks as if it will be clear, so...

It looks like we are in for another hit to-night.

We will get a peak in activity just in time for late summer. I can only pray for the kind of weather we had last summer. We had lots of warm cloudless nights. Then just to make my year, Long Sufferin’ Marie saw to it that I was able to get a camera that makes it easy for me to get great images. Now all I need to do is learn to use it.

Lovely clear skies here, but we may be too far south to see the aurora. I looked north but cannot see 'out!

This is big right now; all I need is a clear sky so I can get some great pix.

This is what Europe is getting right now, I think even better than last night.

All this from a flare that erupted on the sun that's coming here at about 4 Million Mph...
